Cops: Gunpoint robbery of NE McDonald's caught on camera


Police are looking for two men who robbed a Northeast Philadelphia McDonald’s of about $10,000 cash last month.

On Wednesday, cops released surveillance video of the robbery, during which one of the robbers walked into the store at Cottman Avenue and Roosevelt Boulevard just after 5 a.m. on Aug. 29, bought food and sat down to eat while the second robber walked in, jumped behind the counter and brandished a handgun, demanding that the manager open the safe.

The robber who’d been sitting then walked behind the counter, and the pair took about $10,000 from the safe, police said, before fleeing in a dark-colored car.

The first suspect is described as a 20-year-old black man, 6 feet tall, who wore a blue hooded sweatshirt, blue pants and gloves and carried a black and silver handgun. The second is also described as a black man about 20 and 6 feet tall. He wore a blue hooded sweatshirt with an Adidas logo, blue jeans and had a beard, according to police.

Tipsters should contact the Northeast Detective Division at 215-686-3153, the tip line at 215-686-TIPS (8477) or text a tip to PPD TIP (773847).
